Lisuride in Cluster Headache

Authors


Abstract

SYNOPSIS

Ten patients with cluster headache of different types, treated previously with several kinds of drugs, received lisuride hydrogen maleate in doses varying from 2X0.025 mg to 16X0.025 mg.

The results obtained with lisuride were quite satisfactory as compared to results with other drugs, and there were no side-effects in this small group of patients.

Comparatively to migraine, which requires low dosages of lisuride, cluster headache seems to require a higher dosage of the drug for better results.
